Drip Tips with Grant – Public Perception

Hey, vape fans! Today I’d like to talk a little bit about you guys! That’s right, today’s drip tips are going to be about the vapers, the sub ohmers, cloud chasers, and the flavor chasers out there using a dripper or RTA on a daily basis. A lot of people don’t understand why we do what we do. Why do we like to use rebuildables when it is so much easier to use a tank and disposable tank system? Who are we and what do we do for the vaping movement?

First off, anyone who has rebuilt their own coil has something in common: A interest for a greater knowledge and connection to their E-cig. Whether you are seeking more flavor or bigger clouds, you still have motivation to learn. That’s how I believe we can classify ourselves; The “post grad” vapers. We strive to be on top of the E-cig game by researching new mods, attys, and builds. We are different than the person who buys a starter kit and sticks with that to quit smoking. We take things to new levels, driving innovation in our fields. Some folks have even made a living in the E-cig community by doing just that. Many of your favorite reviewers fit in with us drippers, and through their opinions and knowledge help bring out new products for us to enjoy.

So why do any of this in the first place? Why is it so important? Rebuildables, in general, make for a much better vaping experience. RBAs give the user the capability of customizing their equipment to fine tune to their vaping preference. The importance of being able to adjust to preference is because it improves the chance of success. Not everyone fits into one category when it comes to vaping, as we know from the vast amount of different products on the market.

There are so many different types of drippers like us out there. Some of us like wide open airflow and mountains of vapor. Others go for the dense, rich flavor that is produced by a rebuildable device. Some just like the ability to save money by rebuilding coils instead of paying for new ones.

What we need to realize about non-vapers and non-rebuildable users, is that our way of vaping is not always appreciated and for good reason. In a bar or restaurant, it is not polite to blow huge clouds indoors. We get a lot of flak for things like this, even though, a small majority of us behave like this. Just keep it in mind when you are in public, that other people’s experiences with us may not have been positive.

We can change that, however. We have already changed so much about our industry, and we can help change the perception of it as well. By adopting respectful habits while vaping in public, and showing common courtesy, we can help get rid of that bad rap and ensure friendly interactions with our fellow man!

Thanks for reading!
